As I recall, PREVIEW is the general equivalent of FreeBSD's STABLE: it
tracks recent development, but not the latest bleeding edge.  You may
rarely encounter troubles with it.

HEAD is for people who like troubleshooting strange errors.
RELEASE_x.x is for people who don't like anything to go bad, ever.

I run RELEASE_x.x on my home server, for instance, because I can't have
that go down.
